You’ve probably noticed in recent years that The Sixth Sense filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan, once the most lauded artist in the industry and once laughingstock of Hollywood, has been enjoying a career renaissance. He’s put out five films in the last seven years, all thanks to his distribution partner, Universal Pictures. Now the two are set to go their separate ways.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, M. Night Shyamalan has found a new studio home. The filmmaker and his Blinding Edge Pictures have inked a multi-year, first-look deal with Warner Bros. And the new partners are wasting no time, as the studio has already set a date for his next feature, Trap, which will open Aug. 2, 2024.

Under the deal, Shyamalan will develop projects for Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line, which recently acquired The Watchers. He will produce the feature that is to be written and directed by his middle daughter, Ishana Night Shyamalan.

What do you make of this news? Do you think Warner Bros. will be a good home for M. Night Shyamalan? Do you even think the move will make a noticeable difference? Sound off in the comments below to let us and the rest of the movie-loving world know your thoughts!
